New Details On PUSHING DAISIES: THE MUSICAL From Creator Bryan FullerCreator Bryan Fuller has now shared additional details on the recently announced plans to bring cult ABC TV series PUSHING DAISIES to the musical stage some season soon as part of a new interview.

"There's a couple of format options," Fuller recently revealed of the proposed project.

Elaborating, Fuller commented, "Barry [Sonnenfeld] said to me, 'I have some ideas on how we could pull this off!' I would love to do a musical, and I also would love to do a movie [as opposed to a Netflix run], because you have higher impact and it also has an iconography."

Furthermore, Fuller says, "I would love to do a musical and make it all about Kristin Chenoweth and her character, Olive Snook."

Additionally, Fuller adds, "I think it would be incredible!"
